Android Developers Get Native-Code Kit

A native application development kit has been released for Android developers, offering a way to create certain kinds of high-performing applications for handsets running the Google platform. Android applications run through the Dalvik virtual machine, which emulates a Java virtual machine. On Thursday, the Android Native Development Kit (NDK) was released, allowing coders to create parts of their Android 1.5 applications outside Dalvik, using native-code languages such as C and C++.
